This room was Nancy Drew meets Sherlock Holmes meets National Treasure! I had a blast with my group solving all the puzzles that led to more puzzles. Some puzzles were simple, some medium in difficulty, and some absolutely IMPOSSIBLE. I take my hat off to anyone who solved some of the hardest ones we dealt with. The setting was legit and convincing. Our Game Master, Laura, was so fun and into the whole thing. She gave us subtle hints when needed and contributed to the whole experience. I will be coming back to take on the other rooms!

There were 11 of us trying to get out of the room. It was a lot of fun, but serious trying to figure out the clues to unlock cabinets, drawers, arrange letters, counting, reading...sometimes not seeing the obvious. We all got blown up by the bomb that we did not defuse in time.

I have previously been to Clue Chase and decided to go back when I received an announcement that they were opening their latest room, the Alien. What a blast! The room is large with lots of activities to keep you busy and very high tech. Loved the robot. We didn’t complete the mission but still had loads of fun. This room is different from the other rooms that I have tried, but just as fantastic and keeps well to the theme. If you haven’t been there yet, you should definitely go.

Fun, fast-paced and engaging. We managed to escape (first time), and we really enjoyed it. We were two couples paired with a family and despite not knowing each other became fast partners in deciphering clues. Clue Chase was great, highly recommended.

What a great idea in the middle of NYC... We will be back. An hour is good , but two hours would be a lot better.
